Adding up airfare, hotel and park tickets can make it a once in a lifetime trip. Choosing the right hotel in Anaheim can significantly help lower your costs - while still ensuring your holiday is the best you've ever had. Our pick for travellers on a budget is the Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel & Water Playground for the following four reasons.
1. Budget friendly
The biggest concern with travel is usually the cost. When flying internationally,
particularly to a destination where the local currency is stronger than yours,
it's a top priority to find the best value possible for hotels. The Howard Johnson
is incredible value, with rooms from around $159 USD per night.
It's hard to beat
this price when matched with the location, which is next on the list.
2. Location, location, location
The Howard Johnson is an 8-minute walk from the main gates of Disneyland and
Disney California Adventure Park. You can literally get up and stroll down to Disneyland
- no bussing required. Not only does it make early mornings and the end of the day
easier to get to and from home, it's also so close that during the day you can take
time out from the craziness of Disneyland to rest in your room or play in the water
park, then go back for the fireworks.
3. Castaway Cove
The Howard Johnson has an incredible water park for exclusive use of guests called
'Castaway Cove'. Their pirate-themed water park has a 30-foot pirate ship complete
with slides and water cannons, plus fountains, a toddler wading pool, a 200-gallon
drenching bucket, a 15-person hot tub and a garden pool.
It's enough to entertain
every member of the family.
4. Spacious accommodation
There is so much space in the Howard Johnson rooms that you'll be able to fit all
your luggage without tripping over it, and still have room to spread out and relax.
The hotel also has several rooms and suites on the property that are geared towards
larger families with bunk beds and rollaways on request.
